Online Workshop on “Texturizing Vegetarian Proteins (TVP) by Extrusion Technology for Making Plant-Based Meats”

Friday, 29th January

Workshop overview:

This workshop will give the participants an understanding of how twin screw extrusion technology can be used to transform various ingredients into value added meat analogues. The workshop will cover basic theory as well as online training through videos of protein texturization on Brabender TwinLab F-20/40 twin-screw extruder. The topics will include principles and techniques of protein texturization, introduction to twin screw extruder, protein sources and characterisation, process parameters that influence the texturization and examples of high moisture and low moisture protein texturization on the lab-extruder.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand key parts and components in a twin-screw extruder and its operation.
  • Develop a basic understanding of processing parameters of a twin-screw extruder and their effect on texturization of vegetable protein (TVP) or meat analogues.
  • Identify basic ingredient properties that will make a high-quality extruded meat analogue.
  • Online training for manufacturing of high moisture (wet TVP) and low moisture (dry TVP) products.
  • Case studies and market overview of plant based meats.
